Answer to Monday's Riddle: Poetry in Motion...

Lazy Jane by Shel Silverstein- my favorite poem. :)
Excellent guessing, Riddlers! This week we'll be wrapping up the year with some of our favorite posts and announcing our December book giveaway winners. See you all around the book block next year. ; ) ~ F

I'm inner imagery; the sense of a scene. I'll make you smell color or carelessly careen. Peddling words when they're tossed and seasoned, I'll deliver to you both rhyme and reason. Some think I'm cheap, too wrapped up in emotion. Some find me scholarly, others seek potion. I can be anything to those who dare leap, it's the blank of my pages that shapes wolves into sheep. What can I be? I'm a genre in history, keeping forever the stroke of life's mystery. Those who write me may become famous, though most end up broke and nameless. But, it matters not the title or author, time sticks to the story like stones in a coffer. 

What am I? Answer: poetry



The answer to the clue is: Poe wrote on both. ;)

  3. I knew it! I saw everyone else guessing "books," but this line tipped me off: "Those who write me may become famous, though most end up broke and nameless." Although that COULD apply to books, as well, I guess!
